Ideas to make your parties more fun and more memorable


May Party Theme Ideas

– Posted in: Months & Seasons

The first of May is May Day.  In the northern hemisphere (UK – May) May Day is the celebration of Spring with traditions of dancing the Maypole and crowning of the Queen of the May.  But here in Australia, May is the the month where is really starts feeling cold for winter.

In many countries, May Day is a day for workers rights – in Australia we have Labor Day and an accompanying public holiday on the first Monday in May (in some states).

In Hawaii, May Day is also known as Lei Day – so you could have an Hawaiian Party

May Party Ideas

and there is…

  • Mother’s Day – have a party for your Mum, or have a party about “mothers”, or a “Mums night out” party.
  • Secretary’s Day (or the more PC version, Office Professionals Day) is on the first Friday in May in Australia (but the Wednesday of the last full week in April in the USA and UK). Aimed at giving recognition to office staff is also a good excuse for a Secretary’s party. You could make this an office stationery party.
